We like to call her Maggie (Magellan shortened) & we purchased it 3 months ago. Being from Hawaii, the roads are much larger in the states & so much easier to get lost, of course in Hawaii if you get lost where can you go, it's an island. Maggie would've saved my husband & I from much unnecessary fights & stress had we purchased it sooner. If I can work it anyone can because I still can't even work my cell phone so it's very user friendly. Simply type in your city, street, & number then Maggie figures out different routes to your destination. You have a choice from fastest time, shortest distance, etc. Maggie is sleek & compact, fits easily into my handbag. The screen is 3.5 inches which is a good size to look at while driving & still won't interfere with your vision of the road. There are points of interest which makes places easier to find such as gas stations, restaurants, ATM's, coffee, & more. The battery lasts for a long time without needing to be recharged. If you miss a turn, Maggie will help you get back on track. Sometimes the accuracy for a location is slightly off but, it's still in the general area. The sticky pad for the mounting unit for the dashboard needs a bit more adhesive which my husband fixed with a little gorilla glue. Other than that it's a great deal & we highly recommend everyone getting one!
